Drain Cleaners Drain cleaners are a no-no for all homeowners. Not only can chemical drain cleaners kill the good bacteria in your septic tank or sewer system, they can also eat away at your pipes! The caustic soda or lye used in them is a powerful oxidizer and can cause severe burns. If your drains are clogged, you’d be much better off paying a little more to hire a plumber to unclog them than using a chemical drain cleaner. If trouble arises, you’ll end up paying a lot more for the damage than you would have if you had hired a professional.
DIY Drain Cleaner:
1. Pour boiling water down the drain
2. Add 1/2 cup baking soda, let sit for a few minutes.
3. Add 1/2 cup white vinegar mixed with very hot water. Let sit for a few minutes. This will cause a chemical reaction – lots of foaming — so cover the drain with a plug or rag. The mixture will work to break down any fats into salt and harmless gas.
4. Flush with boiling water.
